    Bud & Miller to raise prices

    Hopefully this link works.

    Budweiser, Miller to raise prices in the fall - Consumer news- msnbc.com

    They're not making as much money because people aren't buying as much product, so they're going to raise prices. Sounds like a recipe for success.

    Guess I'll be drinking more rum and cokes in the near future...

    I thought alcohol sales were supposed to increase in a recession.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Bud & Miller to raise prices

    Miller owns Coors so I would guess that they will raise prices on both brands.

    I like Coors lite just fine.

    Maybe they should advertise less.....
    For companies that sell such watered down beer they should have no problems making money.

    Re: Bud & Miller to raise prices

    It was about 4 or 5 years ago, the total price I paid on a case of Busch Light at QT was $14.97 (that includes tax & deposit) and today, the cost of an 18 pack of Busch Light costs about the same as that case did 4 or 5 years ago :(
